Annual General Meeting on 30 May 2024, 6 p.m., room 012, Kantonsschule Enge (High School 'Enge')

In fact, we should be celebrating. May 1994 was the first time an IPA team visited ...





Help that works



IPA is engaged in transitional and developing countries with
focus on learning and education.

IPA offers help for self-help, e.g. through projects in the fields of food production and water supply as well as the issuance of micro credits.

The unique aspect of the IPA brand is the
integration of youth in the implementation of projects. This gives Swiss students the opportunity to gain formative experiences.

School classes and junior-teams define, plan and execute their projects independently but are supervised by experienced IPA staff.


All projects are inspected by IPA on location, and once completed, are checked over again. This way all donors have the guaranty that their money is being used in exactly the right places and that people are really getting the help they need.

Annual General Meeting on 30 May 2024, 6 p.m., room 012, Kantonsschule Enge (High School 'Enge')

Albania – even though nobody could guess at the time what would come of it. The shock at seeing the conditions in the former Communist country was as great as our (and – even then – our students') readiness to help.

30 years on, we are still supporting the people in Albania, and now also in Cameroon and Malawi. With all this work, there is no time to celebrate or to look back. At the up- coming general meeting, however, we are as usual giving a presentation with recent pictures from our partner countries, illustrating our projects and activities. At the AGM everyone interested is welcome, including non-members. It's an opportunity to gain a deeper insight into our organization. On this note, we are looking forward to welcoming a large number of participants.
